Peacefully nestled within the fringes of an established meadow enjoying shade from the mature trees, the hand crafted railway carriage is just perfect for couples looking to escape the real world.

This peaceful location will be hard to leave, however before the time comes you will have a wealth of walking to enjoy with simple access into the Black Mountains and slightly further afield the Brecon Beacons National Park. Enjoy the best of both Monmouthshire and Herefordshire’s market towns with regular farmers markets and literature and art festivals. Across the border, you will find an area steeped in history with some of Europe’s finest surviving castles and countryside, Brecon Castle overlooking the River Usk, Abergavenny Castle set against the spectacular hills and Crickhowell Castle, a prominent feature within a small market town. You may wish to enjoy a spot of fishing at one of several nearby locations. At the end of a busy day, return to the blissful peace of your retreat.

Take a stroll across the meadow and arrive at the wooden bridge where you will capture your first glimpse of this hand-crafted railway carriage. The covered terrace with double doors open into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, cosy chairs sit well in front of the wood burner effect electric fire, with a beautifully finished kitchen set against the rear of the carriage, equipped with electric hob, fridge with ice compartment, and for dining you can make the most of the carriage with the small pull out table and chairs. When your day is done climb into the built in double bed with TV. There is also a shower room with WC within the carriage.

Wake up to the sound of bird song and the babbling brook whilst you take breakfast on your private terrace over-looking the water’s edge, the terrace is a perfect sun trap and enjoys a cover for chiller autumn evenings along with a warming fire pit. Outside you will also find a gas BBQ. There is parking for two cars available.

Dogs fees are charged per dog at £20 for up to 7 nights, £40 for up to 14 nights and an additional £20 for every week or part week thereafter.

Beautiful setting, wonderful little hut and a really friendly owner. Everything we needed was available in the hut. So clean it looked brand new! There was even a bottle of wine in the fridge for us! I would definitely go back and would urge anyone who wants peace and quiet in a truly wonderful setting to book ASAP! Thank you for a lovely weekend

We had such an amazing time. Beautifully crafted shepherds hut and the verandah is just ideal to extend the evening with alfresco dining. Fantastic open fire and cosy hammock slung beside the brook ... What more do you need! All in all, a real gem!!

Wow what an amazing relaxing and romantic stay we had. I could have stayed lying in the hammock listening to the stream forever. While my boyfriend fell in love with the fire fit. Our cocker spaniel as never been so tired. We had the best time :-)

Woolwasher's Shepherd's Hut is wonderfully comfortable and well equipped. The terrace area is very useful and lovely to use for meals. It is useful for storing a few things too as the hut is small. The peaceful location of this hut is excellent. We had complete privacy and tranquillity with the sound of the waterfall as a backdrop. It is a great baRead morese for walking in the Black Mountains.

We feel in the love the moment we arrived. Very secluded and was simply the perfect retreat away from everyday life. Lots of amazing walks on your doorstep as well as great pubs to enjoy food and drink. The owners are very friendly, nice people. Little things like a bottle of prosecco on arrival and marshmallows for toasting on the fire made it speRead morecial. Everything had its place and we were so surprised at how soundproof and cosy the hut was. We'll definitely be back for more adventures. Hide
